to syria and what the u.s. should do about escalating fighting and chemical weapons use over there. president obama seems very conflicted about what to do, and i'm not sure i can really blame him, but more and more cities and states are blaming obama care for cutting their government worker jobs and work hours. this ill-advised health care law is likely to cut more private sector jobs than the budget-cutting sequester. all of that and more coming up on "the kudlow report" coming up right now. ♪ ♪ ♪ >>> first up tonight's speaker of the house john boehner says republicans will not shut down the government over obama care. cnbc's john harwood has that story for us. good evening, john. >> reporter: congress returns in just over two weeks to a huge fight over government spending and debt. with no agreement in sight between the white house and congressional republicans, both sides are trying to prepare the ground for the battle and the economic bus tour president obama today tried to rally public opinion against a possibility of a government shutdown aimed at his health care law.

think of it. that's my take. of course, what these markets and economy could really use is a good tax cut. we're not going to get it from president obama. but he should listen to the lessons of the president john f. kennedy, who 50 years ago was a pro-growth tax-cutting supply cidsid sider who finally got the american economy roaring. just wait until you see this on tape. you'll soon believe that jfk was a liberty-defending neocon supply side tax cutter. finally, speaking of taxes tonight, did you know the most expensive money-making colleges in america don't pay any taxes? that's right. they're tax-exempt. even while tuitions are skyrocketing. but the call to change all that is getting louder and louder. all those stories and much more coming up in "the kudlow report," beginning right now. >>> first up tonight, a strong selloff overseas as markets around the world took the brunt of fed taper fears. but less than 24 hours until the latest fed minutes are released, will investors hear more guidance from the fed? good evening, robert. >> hi, larry. the markets moved sideways today as in
, if it ever went away and strong enough that the state department is issuing a travel ban and closing all u.s. embassies in the muslim world because of a real and credible terror threat. now, 162,000 jobs added in july here in the usa. the soft, disappointing number with part-timers beating full-timers confirms what we already know about the economy. it's still only 2%, but stocks liked it. we may be talking about a downsized mini goldilocks. my full take on the jobs report and the market and what it means for the fed later on in the show. and the war of words between chris christie and rand paul is heating up. is the future of the republican party at stake here? our free market friday panel will have all those stories and much more coming up in "the kudlow report" beginning right now. >>> good evening, everyone. welcome back to "ed kudlow report." i'm larry kudlow. the u.s. is on high alert over the threat of an al qaeda terror attack in the northeast or north africa starting this weekend. nbc news' pete williams joins us now with all of the details. good evening, pete. >> u.s. officials say
be on the verge of all-out civil war and it's unclear the u.s. can do anything about it. all those stories and more coming up on "the kudlow report" starting right now. >>> good evening. this is "the kudlow report." larry is off tonight. first up, huge market sell-off. the dow falling 225 points, s & p 500 down 24 and nasdaq fell 63 points. so what's the biggest reason for the sell-off? fear of the fed taper or disappointing profits? joining me on set are larry mcdonald, david goldman, currently president of macro strategy, and alec young, global equity strategist with s & p capital iq. you focus on equities, that's another way to say the stock market. it dropped dramatically today. here's what i don't understand. we got the weekly unemployment claims, people filing for jobless claims for the first time. lowest level we've seen in years. at the same time, we have heard from all these retailers that things aren't very good. what is the story? >> i think we're back into a situation where good news is bad news from a taper perspective. the other thing that i think has investors worried is as
or the beginning of something even worse? joining us tonight, chapwood vehicles, katie stockton at mk and partners and cnbc contributor. how do you answer that question? i know you're positive on the growth we're going through in the united states. what about lately where we're seeing softness in corporate profitability and now the stock market? >> i'm not loving this. the dollar is going down. interest rates are going up. gold is rallying. stocks, you know, technically look a little weaker than i would have thought at this juncture. a big expansion in 52 week low. this market is more vulnerable for a variety of reasons. >> ed, gold up sharply. two year highs on the yields on the yield curve here on the long end of the curve. stocks going lower. dollar going lower. are all those markets doing what they are doing for the same reason, do you think? >> i think they are definitely coordinated. i agree with what ron said. everything he just said i agree with with one exception. when they start hitting technical points where we go through those the computers take over and before you know it we could see
this all went down. brian, for viewers who missed the big news today tell us what happened. >> reporter: we're still trying to figure out what happened. i'll give you what we do know and figure it out from there. about 12:23 you started to see this stuff come down hey i can trade, i'm not getting a bid ask, no price. what happened the nasdaq there was price discovery problem. the trading was fine, figuring out the price was not. that was about 12:23. at first it seemed like a small deal. then bigger. shortly after that the nasdaq halted all nasdaq trade stocks and it wasn't just at the nasdaq because you can trade nasdaq names on other platforms, but all the other platforms were stopped trading because nobody could uncover the correct price for anything, basically around 3:30 stocks started trading again. it didn't affect anything except the nasdaq price itself. we finally got a statement and it said there was a problem, basically price transparency but didn't go into further detail exactly what the problem was or what caused it. >> i got a copy of this thing that you're referring to which
us now with all the details. good evening, steve. what are the high points, in your judgment. >> reporter: if you're in russia today and you're the admitted nsa leaker, you're the alleged american traitor, you're edward snowden and you're watching this white house news conference here today, you had to be smiling. president obama number one ordered a look at the nsa phone data recording program. he ordered that the court that oversees it no longer just rubber stamp all the nsa requests. he ordered more public disclosure by the nsa and he impanelled a group to make further recommendations. the president saying he wants the public to see the nsa the way he sees the nsa. >> all these steps are designed to ensure that the american people can trust that our efforts are in line with our interests and our values. and to others around the world i want to make clear once again that america is not interested in spying on ordinary people. our intelligence is focused above all on finding the information that's necessary to protect our people and in many cases protect our allies. it's tru
washington, state of washington libertarian. but what i'm saying is isn't he going to use all the data that amazon has collected, massive data, to find out what his new customers really want? and isn't that what the "washington post" failed to do? >> i think you're exactly right. and one thing about bezos is he's -- a lot of people saying he's more libertarian. out here he was very involved. he gave millions of dollars in the state of washington to support what he calls marriage equality, which is redefining marriage. so i think he probably leans to the left. but i think he leans toward profit. and that's what we're talking about here. there's a lot of room in national newspapers in between the "wall street journal" and the "new york times." and i think his right play is to go right for that middle ground which the "washington post" hasn't done. it's just basically been an inside the beltway version of the "new york times" and doing -- aiming it nor at the ground between the journal and the times as that national publication and going for that national status, not just inside the beltw
